i scream, you scream, we all scream for. . .CANDY CORN!
Oh sweet, sweet season of candy corn.
My husband says I am like one of the only people who really LIKES candy corn.
I think he's crazy.
So, in honor of my love of the yummy autumn treat (which by the way, I have YET to indulge in, this season) a candy corn card. Totally calorie free.
First, I created a template on scrap paper. I folded it in half, so both sides would be symmetrical, and I just started trimming and checking, and trimming some more, until it was just how I wanted it. (Or good enough anyway!) I left the top a little wider than I would normally, so that there would be enough of a fold.
Then I just traced it onto a folded card-sized piece of Simply Smooth white cardstock (from Discount Cardstock, of course!) Then I used my same template, and cut a piece of Intense Yellow Prismatic, and Classic Orange Prismatic, and glued it right onto my card front.
To finish it off, I added some gingham ribbon. (From Close To My Heart)
Gingham ribbon almost always seems to be the perfect finishing touch!! :)
